Soup Supper. Holiday Tour of Homes. Cup of Cheer. Whatever name you associate with it, for several decades the ladies of the Grand Junction Symphony Guild hosted a winter fundraiser with a soup dinner and a tour of homes around the Valley. In 2011, the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra took over planning of the event and focused on the home tour while adding Holiday-themed tables as a stop at Two Rivers Winery & Chateau.
Over the last five years the holiday-themed tables have been the cornerstone of the Cup of Cheer, as guests would enjoy viewing all the unique table decorations around the Chateau. As planning of this year’s Cup of Cheer event began this summer, it became increasingly difficult to arrange houses for the tour, so the decision was made to highlight the table decoration element as an open house and add some live entertainment, a silent auction, refreshments. Thus the Cup of Cheer has become the Toast of Cheer.
The Toast of Cheer is Sunday, December 4th from 12:30pm – 5:00pm at Two Rivers Winery & Chateau (2087 Broadway). This event is an open house so guests can feel free to stop by anytime. Over 20 tables will be decorated for the Holidays and other festive occasions. Live music, a silent auction, food and refreshments will also be part of the afternoon.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at GJSO.org, by calling 970-243-6787, visiting the Grand Junction Symphony office at 414 Main Street or at Two Rivers Winery & Chateau on Sunday, December 4th starting at 12:30pm.
All funds raised at the Toast of Cheer support the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra and its mission to “engage and enrich the community through symphonic music.”
Whether your yearly Holiday plans have always included the Cup of Cheer or you are looking for an enjoyable afternoon out viewing these unique table decorations, join us for the Toast of Cheer on Sunday, December 4th from 12:30pm to 5:00pm at Two Rivers Winery & Chateau.
